After a couple reschedules, the day finally came for Victoria and John's session...and of course, as I was driving to the location it starts POURING DOWN RAIN. I just prayed and prayed for a break in the rain! I mean, they were coming from Richmond, I had a wedding the next day with no room to move the session to another date, it just HAD to happen that day! Well thank goodness, the rain stopped just in time for us to start shooting. It sprinkled a teensy bit, but hey, if that was all we got, I can't complain :)

don't think I've heard more excitement at a wedding reception than I did when the power came back on. It was like everyone's favorite football team won the superbowl x 1,000. It was insane! GAH! Probably my favorite moment of the day...it just summed it all up into one huge moment of relief. And for that, Hurricane Irene, we thank you. (If you know where this phrase is from, comment below! I'll just be impressed!)
I'd say, if you can re-plan a wedding in just a few short days, and get married during a hurricane, you are ready to handle anything life throws your way. This is exactly what Travis and Diana did. Their outdoor wedding got moved indoors to Diana's home church...she told me, "Maybe this is just God's way of telling me He wanted me to get married in the church!" With the help of some amazing friends and family, they were able to get married the same day Hurricane Irene happened to roll into town.
